Seems like there are some issues happening in Utah with electronic voting. As you know or didn’t know, Maryland scrapped electronic voting for this election but this needs to be watched as #NeverTrump candidate Evan McMullen is trying to beat Donald Trump to stop him from winning the General Election.

Utah Director of Elections Mark Thomas says a programming problem has affected all voting in Washington County, but so far appears it appears limited to that county.
He says about 52,000 registered voters there have yet to cast their ballots.
Election workers are trying to fix the computer problem and hope they can start using the voting machines later in the day.
Thomas says officials were prepared with backup paper ballots. But he said they will need to print more if the problem persists.
There are about 80,000 total registered voters in Washington County. Some 28,000 have already cast their ballots through early voting.
Electronic polls not working, system-wide failure in the state of Utah! Paper ballots scarce. Go vote anyway! #pray
